|Permanent brachytherapy is often performed for prostate cancer using "seeds" -|
small radioactive rods implanted directly into the tumour.
Even though brachytherapy lowers the risk of the patient developing incontinence there is a still a chance that it can happen. If the patient does develop incontinence there are numerous types of incontinence products that can be used. For men who are only experiencing light incontinence they may want to use incontinence pads or guards. These incontinence pads or guards are developed from the same type of material that women’s incontinence pads are made from but they are shaped to give protection where men need it most. Incontinence pads are generally flat pads that attach with an adhesive backing to normal underwear or incontinence underwear. Incontinence guards are shaped pads that go in the front of the underwear to give protection up front.
